A Giveaway!!!



I have been putting together e-courses on Simplifying, Minimizing, Full-Timing, Mindful Home Management and Mindful Parenting.

In an effort to bring together this work, and work out the details, orientation, and determine completeness I am offering up 10 spots as a Cage Free Guinea Pig ;-)

Beginning July 1st I will take 10 randomly selected folks on for free, one on one counseling in the aforementioned subjects. These people will gain access to a private blog, group discussion, scheduled chat, videos, private Q&A emails with me, and some of the completed e-course material.

So, you have questions, I have answers. You have woes, I have tips. You need instructions, I have the how-tos.

In addition, one of the 10 will be randomly selected to receive a free pass to the completed e-course.

So, leave me a comment here. Anything will do. I will announce the winners on July 1st.

In the meantime... Tweet it! FB it! Pass it on! If the randomly selected person's comment mentions that you sent them here YOU will be included as a winner. The more people you refer the more times you are entered to win.

xoxo

Your help is much appreciated. As we work to diversify income these ventures will keep our family in clean food, and me free from Fibromyalgia symptoms.

xoxo

I've been reading your blog for . . . well, a while--you were still in the van! I'm excited to see where your adventures take you. I especially enjoyed this line from your last post on "freedom" "The thing you bemoan now will be the source of nostalgia in the future." SO so so so so true in my life, and I try to remember it whenever I feel whiny. Thanks for your writing; yours is always in the top 3 I check when I go to my RSS reader!

Gwen said...

Cool. There are e-courses popping up everywhere and I've been wondering what they're like =) (and this one I can afford). I'll keep my fingers crossed!

I'm sorry you have to move again - I was living in Sydney when our landlord told us he wasn't going to renew our lease in Jan because HE needed to move in. It was six weeks notice - but three days before my fiance and I were flying back to the US to renew my visa!

At least you've got an RV - all we've got are suitcases =)

Laura said...

I LOVE the picture of you and the baby in the chair! Beautiful.

Angeline Gragasin said...

A beautiful photo indeed, and would love nothing more than to receive time-tested advice on all things impending :)

Tamika LaShelle said...

I was truly moved by your Truth blog earlier. I've posted a blog on my site and linked back to yours!

Lovely picture above!


Love is....TL

NomadRip said...

I'd love to get a look at the material.

Tara W. said...

I'm always interested in more inspiration!

cheris said...

I'm in, mama!

Ms. Loaf said...

E-courses seem to be the new hot thing! I am working on one right now to help people pursue their dream of being a writer (justwritecourse.com still in progress). I'm having trouble with the technical side of things, getting everything set up and all that. I'd love to ask you some questions about that!

Good luck with it!

David said...

Ooh! Pick me! Pick me!

I'd love to learn more about the full-timing especially, but they all look absolutely fantastic!

Thank you for the opportunity! :)

Nellie said...

oooooo! I'm the most usless case you'll ever meet :) I'd be a challenging test run heehee!

OOOh I'd love to check out your new e-courses. Am in the process of simplifying & decluttering (starting with getting rid of my husband LOL) and am working on creating a garden in our backyard that can feed the kids and I year round ... a long process and a (mostly) fun journey!

Jennie said...

Oh, this sounds exciting! I want in and will be passing it along!!

The Kara said...

I could definitely appreciate bringing some simplicity into my life. Love your blog and checking in on your adventures!

KatieB said...

I am very interested in the simplifying and minimizing aspects of your course. I don't have kids, so mindful parenting would do me no good.
I have followed your journey since you first pared down and gave away almost all your stuff. I have been slowly paring down my 'stuff' as I have been a packrat until recently. Good luck with your e-course.

Kymber said...

i'm back after a long and painful trip - feels like we have been living in Afghanistan for the last year. i am reading through all of your posts that i have missed - can't believe that you had a permanent structure for a while - yes i can - you're back on the road!

nomads will always be nomads eh?

i still have an even bigger bunch of herbs - which do you need for your medicines? i will freeze them and send them to you.

and yes - i would love to win your free course!

(hmmm - my "word verification" word is "winerish"....does that mean someone who has a propensity to whining or wine??????? need help with this one!)

mandy foster said...

would love an e-course....such fun and exciting way to learn new things.

That Crazy Family said...

Sounds amazing!! Oh and your picture is so sweet of you and your little one!

Christina said...

Oh, i hope I win. I'd love help in so many areas.

Beth said...

Sounds wonderful! Count me in!

Brianna said...

Sounds great--count me in!

.:a:. said...

Heck yeah! Your e-course sounds awesome :) I'm constantly on the hunt for strategies to make life healthier, happier and more organized. Fingers crossed you pick me!

Kirsten said...

I am interested! kirsten@koagroup.com

CORoots said...

*hand up* !! :-)
I <3 your blog and your way of moving with the flow. Posting on FB right now...

J said...

Holy WOW! How awesome would it be to learn from someone who is such an inspiration. I have TONS of questions I've been wanting to ask you but don't want to be a bother and a pest. I now have my fingers crossed (probably better do my toes too since there are already a lot of comments here and I'm sure there will be lots more pretty quickly).

Angelique said...

Sweet this would be great and I think the experience as one who's children are teens would rock. There seems to be a shortage of helpful hints for folks in my season.

Lara said...

i've also been reading since you were in the van. pick me! pick me! :)

alison said...

sounds awesome. count me in too :)

getting stuff done said...

well I have got to really! Love your blog and am fascinated to see what you are going to do with the ecourses thing. xx

Jenna Gayle said...

Nice! I'd love to be a guinea pig for the Simplifying, Minimizing and Minful Home Management! I finally had to completely move out of my dads house this month (Ha! I've been gone for 5 years, but had enough crap there to be able to just go back and live!) Now my house is seriously cluttered and it's mostly *sentimental* stuff that I don't really need but need to get rid of. Ugh! :)

Victoria said...

I'll really be ready for your e-course especially in July after I've finished selling most of what my family owns and we get settled into our life aboard our sailboat. Even though I'm living the dream, a little guidance would be wonderful, especially in regards to parenting two small children through a BIG transition.

Liz said...

That sounds like just what I need. Good Luck to me. epdeans@yahoo.com

Susan said...

I would love to take your e-courses. I'm a 43 yr old new mom (love being a mom, my baby girl is 8 months), stuffed into a small condo without a garage! My hubby wants me to part with stuff, but in our family we never throw anything out! I need help with organizing/simplifying and I also really love it when you write about food. Have you put together a meal planning course?

WyldChild said...

I love your writing. Your last post really resonated about change and accepting the inevitability of it. I find that when I just go with the flow of life, it continues to flow and doors open and new gifts are let in. And when I don't and get stuck then I feel like I'm hitting a brick wall. The thing is, I KNOW this to be true and yet I still get stuck. It's like I forget, you know???

Melissa said...

So glad you're getting the course going. Pick me!!!

camille yanair said...

I would LOVE this opportunity. I'm just now getting a start into the big girl world (graduated finally! woop ! woop!) and trying to make the transition as "cage free" as possible. Would LOVE to learn from you!

Keri said...

awesome! looking forward to july 1st! =)

Unusual Combinations said...

What a wonderful idea! I hope you get lots of students--the world could use more people like you. :)

Miss K said...

I was very inspired by you on MB. I'd love to win a place in your e-course. Thank you.

whtmtnmom said...

Ooo! Pick me! Pick me! Seriously though, I found your blog from Happy Janssens which I found from welcometomybrain. Dh and I are barely treading water in deep with five young kids one new to our family at four years old. We NEED lessons on simplifying and mindful living more than we could have ever imagined. (And we're your neighbors over here in NH.)

I'm looking forward to more on your blog!

elfimka said...
